Featuring 17 poster designs, 7 x A2 and 10 x A3 posters, printed in full-colour on 100% recycled paper using vegie-based inks. Our 3rd poster series brings together a powerful collection of posters by artists, designers and writers breaking down the nuclear industry in Australia.
THE NUCLEAR POSTERS contains 17 intelligent, provocative and affecting political posters within one beautiful publication. Breakdown Press has published this powerful collection of posters by artists, designers and writers breaking down the nuclear industry in Australia and celebrating creative dissent. Published at a time when the Howard-led Liberal Government was taking Australia down the nuclear path with the pedal to the metal in the lead-up to the 2007 Federal Election, THE NUCLEAR POSTERS brought together the work of committed artists and campaigners to spark debate about the role of the nuclear cycle in Australia. The posters chosen for this publication build on the history of the political poster movement and act as an oppositional force to this vicious nuclear cycle.
